Many people are expected to travel, at least locally, and sometimes nationally or internationally. They are the point of contact between a business interested in buying a product or service, and their own business, which sells the product or service. A representative definitely requires product knowledge of whatever he or she is selling, and is more successful when skilled at talking to people and learned at various sales tactics. Pay rate for the sales representative is highly dependent on the market for the product being sold, and reimbursement strategies can differ significantly.
